projects

Sidera works with a wide range of projects, from simple non structural repairs to re-builds and new build projects. These are a small sample demonstrating the range of project management skills required.

ministry of social development, christchurch

Sidera was engaged by the building owner, J S Porter Ltd, to manage a strengthening and repair programme to 100% NBS, and by the tenant, the Ministry of Social Development, as main contractor for the fit-out at 39 Durham Street, Christchurch over a six month period from planning stage to final code of compliance. The redevelopment of the earthquake-damaged building entailed the demolition of the existing floor slab, the installation of major foundation beams underpinned by 46 screw piles driven to 24 metres. Thirty tonnes of steelwork was added to reinforce the superstructure to allow for snow and wind loading, and the interior re-fitted to deliver 1,550m² of purpose designed office space. Read more...

The building at 55 Montreal Street, Christchurch has undergone significant repair and strengthening works following damage from the 2011 Canterbury earthquakes. Strengthening works were designed to bring the building to 100% of NBS. Before demolishing the existing slab, the superstructure was reinforced with additional steel columns and roof bracing. The concrete floor was removed in stages so that building intregrity was maintained. Foundation beams underpinned with 13.2 metre piles were laid and the concrete slab re-poured in a staged process. Read more...

The overall scope of the Durham Street, Christchurch project is to repair and strengthen the building to 100% NBS without interrupting tenant operability. The building was once the largest single span structure in the Southern Hemisphere and includes a suspended timber piled floor on a concrete ring foundation and a complex steel saw-tooth roof truss system.  The damage to the building was significant and the repairs and strengthening work are extensive, and complicated by the requirement to accommodate existing businesses while the works are undertaken.

garden city bowl

The Garden City Bowl repair is typical of much of the work undertaken by Sidera since the Canterbury earthquakes. The business operates 12 hours a day, 7 days a week and was shut for just one week while the franchise owner undertook a fit-out. The building repair work included crack injection to most wall panels, roofing repairs, weatherproofing and repainting, and was completed within the fit-out timeframe, accommodating tenant needs.
